Let the Healing Begin
It is time to let go of the old wounds. I don’t mean let go temporarily. I mean let go completely. Heal. Move past that old rock. Drop the rock of old pains and patterns and never pick it up again. I am ready. Are you?
What is my first step. (It may not be yours, and that’s ok.) My first step is not to talk about the wound, identify it, review it. No, I’ve done that already. And it doesn’t make the wound go away. It may offer temporary relief, but it doesn’t fully heal. At least that’s been my experience. My first step in this fully and whole healing is to accept that the wound happened. I mean accept it completely, whole-heartedly. No resistance. No blaming. No victimization. Just accept it. (The reality is that just about every person has been wounded in some way, and that’s because we share this life experience with so many others who have been wounded. And so much of our emotional life is spend reacting and acting from our own wounds. Who can get away unscathed???)
Acceptance so complete that there is no emotional attachment to the past, no emotional hiccup, no emotional ties. No nothing. Just empty space. Detachment. Unhooking the ties that bind. Unraveling the web of constriction. Acceptance so complete that it feels like floating above it all. Acceptance so whole that I experience a new surge of energy and lightness.
The light and lightness that comes from acceptance. The relief and relaxation that comes from no resistance. Surrendering the struggle. The smile that comes to my face as I anticipate the sweetness of wholeness.
